Detailed with stripes and symbols this dark hand-woven lumbar cushion is made from the Sabra cactus by the Berber people of the Atlas mountain regions of Morocco.
The cactus silks are made from a process of harvesting the leaves of the Agave Sabra cactus for the filaments within, which are then spun and woven. Traditionally the threads where dyed with spices and plant extracts, this cushion with its dark and regal colours reminds of the souks and riads at the close of day, the twilight before night descends, the whispers of stories and forgotten tales.
10% of every cushion sold from our Moroccan collection goes to support the fabulous work of the Imsone Project, a charity dedicated to the vaccination, health and well-being of the Moroccan dogs (And some cats!) We where lucky enough to spend some time with them, to participate in the walking of 50 + dogs along the Moroccan coastline. We challenge anyone to visit the Imsone project and not fall in love.
